Finally back in gold! Fuck mid-silver, never again.


#545

Yeah. Let’s group our ranking matches next season. I never want to experience this again for as long as I shall live.


#546

The farmer’s almanac uses this quote to reliably foretell the changing of the seasons.


#547

I’m not for or opposed, but for me it’s either full team vs full team or solo queue. None of this mix and match.


#548

I have the most fun doing competitive with 3-4 person teams. If you 6-stack, you are up against 6-stacks. It’s rare you have 6 friends who are all A game, and your one B friend is the difference between a good game and disaster.

Full disclosure: I’ve been that B friend in some games.

Me: We have three DPS and no hitscan, plus they’ll probably run pharah on this map.

Mei: I’ve got hitscan.

The discourse:

Platinum Tier: "Are you sure you can Widow? If you don’t get a pick in the first minute, please switch out."
Gold Tier: "Can one of our DPS switch to Soldier? We need to take care of that Pharah"
Silver Tier: "We don’t need Torb and Widow on offense…"
Wood Tier: -indecipherable screaming-

Pretty much yeah. My games got way less stressful as I climbed. Never been high enough to tell for sure, but I suspect there’s at least some kind of bell curve. Mid plat people tend to be “happy enough to be plat”. I think as you get higher there’s a lot more rage about not yet being diamond and so on.


#552

I do have to say, in my hey-mei-day, I was headshot-ing pharahs and widows. And then, freezing them over pits and such when the fuel ran low. BAHAHA


#553

I’ve seen plenty of Mei’s outdo soldiers at killing Pharah, but alas this was not one of those Mei’s.


#554

I used to hook Pharahs reasonably well back when Roadhog was a useful hero…


#555

'Member when Pharahs ran out of fuel?


#556

those were the days.


#557

I never see any of you kids on anymore. I’m relegated to solo-queueing every day.

6v6 Lockout Elimination is super crazy fun!


#558

Been traveling for work for the past few months and the weather is nice.


#559

Yeah, with the time difference you are usually playing when I’m having meals or I am out and about. Otherwise I would’ve joined yesterday.


#560

Pkerr was playing games on their PC for a while & I got out of the habit. I want to get back in, but also… probably should focus on other things.


#561

Black One Punch Man is out


#562

Someone needs to make an AMV with the One Punch Man theme


#563

So instead of making an arcade mode where you could actually learn how to play as/against doomfist, Blizzard decided to ruin quickplay for a week.
